Can somebody help? I want to wipe a computer clean of any novell components. I have a computer my father gave me that is configured to access his jobs network...he still uses his old computer and doesn't need this one. I want to keep the current version of Win XP Pro that they have installed but after that I just assume get rid of everything and start from scratch. I unfortunately don't have the windows installation disks so I can't really reformat the drive....where should I start?
Any Ideas?
Thanks

Ok, so log in, and try the add/remove programs utility int he control pannel. If this does not work, then restart the computer in safe mode. To do this, push "F8" just before it shows the Windows XP loading screen. A screen will appear with a lot of different booting options. Choose Safe Mode. I don't think Novell wil load in safe mode, but I'm not sure. Try removing t from safe mode, and let me know what happens! Hope this helps.
